On arrival to our Room it was clear that there was no welcome effort...every insect in the vicinity decided a nice dark space (room) was fitting for their new home. At least clearing the room before we arrived was acceptable. the facilities were a shambles, it was as if there wasn't a care in the world for cleanliness, the place was just dirty, dirty food and dirty cooking area. Unhygenic...Ended up leaving and having to spend an extra $100 to stay elsewhere, Refused refund.. Typical

Really great, fun place to stay. Loved the laid-back vibe and met some really awesome friends while staying there for about four days. Short walk to a diving shop down the road (if you dive) and close to the Maggie island hotel - which has great food and a big bar where all the locals party and sometimes live bands. Loved it! Close to the busstop and right on the beach, and great that they rent cars right from the hostel. Would stay again.

Location: based on Arcadia Bay had to get a bus over to Horseshoe bay to see anything as well as the forts walk. Accommodation: stayed in a tent, which was fine, rather enjoyed that aspect. Toilets and showers were clean but only 1 of each outside to be used. No free Wi-Fi but there is a café around the corner that offer breakfast and WiFi for free Kitchens were clean but minimal accessories and cutlery so had to search around for them. Would have stayed closer to Horseshoe bay

For some peace and quiet on Magnetic Island, go to this place. If you want to party in the evenings, go to Base. Even though Base was fully booked, I was there every night and slept at Arcadia, which was perfect for me. Get one of their small jeeps to drive around the island. Magnetic Island is gorgeous.

Cool, cute hostel. The staff was nice but also rude at times. There were not many bathrooms which was an issue. The hostel was quite expensive (the whole island is, so not surprising). Despite the price, wifi was not free. The hostel rents cars which was nice and convenient.

Really relaxing place, comfy beds and rooms with air con. The guy at the front desk wasn't the most helpful, but we checked in during dinner. Good facilities, you can rent a car. Overall nice stay as long as ur not expecting any nightlife, things close really early around there.

Thanks to Ian and Craig (the owners) for this amazing Christmas week at Arcadia Beach Guest House. We had a splendid time and where invited for Christmas lunch with the owners and the staff. The guest house is well situated right at the beach near one of the islands snorkel-trails. Outdoor kitchen was really nice and the rooms where good as well. /Christina and Nadja, 23/12/16-30/12-16

Placed on a nice cove which looked great for smirking, also in good location for walks to other areas of the island. Bus stop is nearby so easy to get to and from. Facilities are good - all that you need. Quirky accommodation as we slept in the tents, was sceptical but really enjoyed the stay.

Chilled place, plenty of space and no bunks. Kitchens are good and plenty of room to laze around if you don't want to go to the beach. Pick up/drop off for the ferry and cars for hire. Would recommend.

Arcadia guesthouse has an excellent beach front location, and is walking distance to some restaurants. The car hire attached to the guesthouse is ideal, and we had great fun touring the Island in a 4WD. Very clean and staff went out of their way to accommodate us (after an unforeseen error by another company). Annie and Jed have clearly put a lot of effort into the guesthouse and are very passionate about it - they were so welcoming and made for a very pleasant stay.
